This game is quality. Tomb raider legend was a brilliant game but was shorter than I expected. I've always loved the tomb raider series and hoped eidos would not mess this up, and they haven't. They've stayed true to the original and added some. The graphics are superb and the lighting is beautiful. The detail is fantastic and examples of this are the small flies in the sunlit areas, and Lara's top going darker when wet and leaving water footprints for a few seconds after emerging from water. The new rage system is brilliant. You fire at an enemy until it hits its rage meter, then when it charges the screen blurs and if you time your dodge roll correct a target will appear. Hit this at the right time for a one hit kill. The game has been re-done in places to include the new moves like Lara's grapple and the perchable columns. The game also tests your puzzle solving skills and all the puzzles are well designed and don't get boring. The areas you visit are beautiful too and include a coliseum arena, the sphinx, Egyptian gods, the lost world, a room with four doors including the Poseidon room which is a delight to play, and the final level before the end boss fight is full of lava where the heat haze and lava look so good. Each of these environments feel the part and also feel untouched when you visit them, you feel like you're the first person to see these areas. Lara moves fantastically well to from the running, climbing and swimming, each movement looks realistic.
Once the game is finished you can have a crack at a time trial on each level in which you can afford to make very few mistakes and provides a decent challenge. This adds more fun to the experience.
This is a quality game and has improved on a classic without ruining the experience of the original PS1 game. The only downside is that you no longer fight the 3 characters working for Natla, they have been replaced with interactive scenes, but this doesn't stop the game getting 5 stars. Brilliant.
